JAZZ AT THE MUSIC VILLAGE
The Music Village is a private Jazz Club founded 14 years ago
and located at the very heart of Brussels. The Club offers some 100 seats. Though the Club offers the possibility of wining and dining, it is in the first place a concert hall and not “a restaurant with good music”… We guarantee the musicians (all true professionals) an attentive audience.The public is composed of both jazz connoisseurs and non-connoisseurs.The Music Village is happy to have brought back to Jazz music a large number of spectators who had been alienated from it by 2 frequently mentioned obstacles:
“jazz music is for connoisseurs only”
“jazz is free and incomprehensible”.
We expect musicians who wish to perform at the Club to respect this general concept and to choose the more accessible (to a large audience) songs from their repertoire,
without denying their art and creativity, obviously.
Besides Jazz music (mainly), the Village also schedules BLUES, LATIN MUSIC and CHANSON.
